The Nebraska Bluegrass concert series will kick off with Appalachian Road Show at 6 p.m. on Aug. 10 in the plaza of Nebraska Innovation Campus.

Appalachian Road Show is a visionary acoustic ensemble, bringing new-generation interpretations of traditional Americana, bluegrass and folk songs, as well as offering innovative original music, all presented with a common thread tied directly to the heart of the Appalachian regions of the United States.

The live music concert series is free and open to the public. Food and drink will be available for purchase from The Mill Coffee and Bistro starting at 5 p.m.

The series will continue on Sept. 14 and Oct. 12.

The Sept. 14 concert will be performed by The Steel Wheels. The Steel Wheels have long been at home in the creative space between tradition and innovation, informed by the familiar sounds of the Virginia mountains where the band was formed, but always moving forward with insightful lyrics and an evolving sound.

The final concert of the series on Oct. 12 will feature the Lincoln-based Shucks Brothers. The Shucks Brothers feature great harmony vocals and some serious string tickling on bluegrass, country and western swing favorites.

Tours of Nebraska Innovation Studio, the makerspace at NIC, will also be offered at 5 and 5:30 p.m. before each performance. Limited concert seating is available; attendees are asked to bring their own chairs.

The concert series is sponsored by Nebraska Innovation Campus, The Mill Coffee and Tea, ALLO Fiber, Union Bank and Trust, The Scarlet Hotel and Tetrad Property Group.
